TWO Graduation/money cards- Nephew

Hello again.  Thanks for stopping.  Today I had to make graduation cards for a nephew and a niece who are graduating this year, both from high school.  I want something unique for both so here is what I did....

For my nephew I started out using the design from Jills Ink.   But with a few changes.  I put the entire card on a card base to give it stability.  I used my CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut CONGRATS, JAMES, 2016.  I stamped inside the card and around the sentiment (Congrats, James, 2016) using my tiny confetti  stamp from the KALEIDOSCOPE Cardmaking Workshop with Canary, Black and Sunset inks.  I also added a button brad that is so adorable.  Here is his card.

 I decided to post this card and when I am finished with the one for my niece I will post that one too. 

If you need any help making a card like this, please let me know in your comment.  Thanks for GRADUATING yourself to my graduation card and hope you PROMOTE my card to your friends, heehee.
INKYFINGERS..... a great way 
to start your day!
